Our first Door county event is a reception for guest artists Romulus Craft. Intrepid Vermont ceramics artists, Ikuzi Teraki and Jeanne Bisson, stole our hearts when we first encountered their work. Smitten, we can’t wait to share it. Opening for season Friday, May 13, 2016. Romulus on site Fri-Sun. A large selection remains for the season.

WPTMartinez Studio was featured in 2014 on Wisconsin Public Television’s Wisconsin Life Series. The segment received a regional Emmy for Ryan Ward Photography.
